Bond Set For Seven After Glen Ellyn Drug Bust
Four kilos of cocaine were seized after Thursday's raid at La Playa Cantina.
Seven are facing felony charges after multiple law enforcement agencies raided a Glen Ellyn restaurant and seized $120,000 worth of cocaine.
The seven arrested in the drug bust at La Playa Cantina appeared in bond court Friday and each are facing charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted each of the individuals could face 15 to 60 years in jail.
Bonds were set at various amounts ranging from $750,000 to $1.5 million.
It is unclear if any of the individuals are out on bond.
